As a writer, James Baldwin alters the way you read literature. As a human being, he works to alter the way you exist in the world. In this eight-session course, we will focus on single stories in Going to Meet the Man and try to understand society as James Baldwin saw it and wrote it.
What to expect from this reading group: The structure of my course is conversational and participant-driven. There will always be prompts at the beginning of class, but the conversation is usually led by the group, and I serve as facilitator.
